Ah, apologies to the lizard wranglers, I got caught out by the repo switch for 
4.5 and so was running trunk instead.  Reverted to 4.5 and all is good again.  
I can't reproduce the Kwin crash anymore, but compositing will switch itself 
off instead due to lack or resources.  And I can't use blur or translucency, 
so Nvidia still sucks :-)

This still happens, so it looks to be a different bug.  It appears to be if I 
type in a partial app name and it exactly matches a previous partial app name 
I entered (i.e. the ghost text that appears as I type), then it takes 2 enter 
presses, but if it's a new partial or is a complete match for the app name 
then only one enter is required.

For example, when typing in dolphin, after typing 'do' I get a ghost for 
'dolp'.  If I complete typing 'dolp' or use the right arrow to complete it, 
then I have to press enter twice.  If I only enter 'dol' or enter 'dolphin' 
then only 1 enter is required.

bko time :-)
